1 white onion
1 heaped teaspoon of curry powder of your choice
1 handful of washed sultanas
1 crisp cooking apple peeled and chunky diced
1 handful of raw cashew nuts
1 tin of chickpeas washed thoroughly
1 small can of coconut cream
Fry one chopped onion & one capsicum (any colour) in olive oil. When they have softened add either your own curry mix or a bought curry powder. I used a bought one and used one heaped teaspoonful.
Add a handful of washed sultanas, a chopped apple, a handful of raw cashew nuts and stir so they pick up the curry mix. Then add a tin of chickpeas which have been thoroughly rinsed so that the water runs clear and mix in. Lastly add a small tin of coconut cream. Let this slowly simmer whilst you prepare the rice. Give it a stir every few minutes.
Wash basmati rice three times before putting it into boiling water, put the lid on the saucepan and turn heat right down. About 20 minutes later you will have prefect rice with all the water absorbed, but check every 5 minutes just incase it cooks quicker.
Serve with mango chutney, coconut and poppadums. Serves 4 hungry people or 3 greedy ones !!
